Pale lemon in color. Light minerality and pear notes in the nose. Lovely round mouthfeel and balance showing apple and white peach flavors with a supple, elegant finish.

Winemaker Notes

On October 11, 2007 8.5 tons of estate fruit was harvested (21.2 Brix, 5.2 g/L TA, 3.33 pH) crushed, de-stemmed, pressed and the juice was racked off the gross lees the next day and kept on the fine lees for an additional three days (cool) and chaptalized to 22.5 Brix. The wine was cool fermented (~ 65 F) with two yeasts (T306 and D47). On October 13, 2007 6.5 tons of Seneca fruit was received (20.8 Brix, 5.5 g/L TA, 3.51 pH) crushed and de-stemmed and settled. The wine was fermented cool using two yeasts (D47, CY 3079) with battonage weekly for three months. Technical adjustments included an addition of tartaric acid, SO2, grape tannins, cold and heat stabilization and filtration.

Food Pairing

A harmonious framework for pairing with light meats such pork and fowl.
